Leading with Heart
Josefina and Stuart Card began their story at CMU, and together, they’re making an impact for fellow Tartans
By Amanda S.F. Hartle
Josefina (TPR 1969, 1971) and Stuart Card (TPR 1970, DC 1978) started their five-decades-long romance sitting back-to-back in study carrels. Now, they’re showing their shared love of CMU by paying it forward with support for future generations of Tartans.
“We started dating my first week in the United States,” Josefina says. “We’ve been together ever since.”
In their 53 years together, they’ve made human-computer interaction history, started a successful social sciences R&D firm, raised two daughters and left a legacy for CMU students — and it all started in the then Graduate School of Industrial Administration’s student offices.
“Our whole story is really very CMU,” Stuart jokes.
